Re: 64 bit MAC software.


I've installed BBCSDL on Windows, MacOS and Android.  I'm happy to say it works on them all.  I must say, however, that I'm not likely to use it much on MacOS ( a MacMini 2012 bought second hand to try out).  I don't like the MacOS much and I'm always glad to get back to Windows.  In fact I run Windows 10 on the MacMini in Parallels, where the installed version of BBCSDL works well.

I don't think that Mac users associate BBC Basic with the Mac, so I think the user base is likely to be rather small,  so I think your resources are probably better directed to the other platforms.

You've said the same before, and I've noted it, but you've been a lone voice in that opinion so far.  If I believed that most BBC BASIC users were prepared to "bite the bullet" - that is to accept the need to modify many of their programs and learn 'new ways' of doing things - the decision would be easy.  But I suspect, and fear, that a large majority of users are in fact quite change-averse.  How many dyed-in-the-wool BB4W users have even taken enough interest in BBCSDL to install it on their Windows PCs, despite the compatibility with BB4W being excellent in comparison?  Even you, I think, have been reluctant to embrace BBCSDL.
